    I call as little as possible in that situation, if you know the birds are there and roosted. Just a few very soft yelps with either box or slate. Best to let him start gobbling on his own if possible then call just enough to get his attention and hopefully he comes looking for you. I don’t call more than every 10-15 mins or so usually. I carry 2 box calls, a slate, several diaphragms and a gobble shaker. The situation dictates what I use more so than any plan ahead of time, you’ve got to just be ready and play the situation as best you can. I am far from an expert, lots of guys on here with more experience than I, hopefully they chime in.
    Twist and pull.
